Sapphires belong to the Corundum mineral family, making them second only to diamonds in hardness and strength. Sapphires are made from a unique mixture of aluminum and oxygen, and are most typically deep blue or purple in color.




Sapphire stones are powerful bringers of faith and good fortune. Known as the Gem of Autumn, ancient kings believed that merely looking upon a Sapphire pendant would bring good luck. Known as the primary talisman for peace, prosperity, and truth, a sapphire stone was Prince Charles’ gem of choice in selecting the engagement ring he gave to Princess Diana. Ancient Persians believed that the whole world rested on a giant sapphire, and its reflection colored the sky.
